Once a small princely state, Aundh now is in the Satara district of Maharashtra. The hired farm hands and marginal cultivators of Aundh and the nearby villages depended mainly on the rain-gods and the money-lenders. Although situated near the Western Ghats, it is a drought-prone region, making people's life harsh, and harsher. After 25 years of independence, modern banking finally came to Aundh in 1972. One more nationalised bank was established in 1977.This film presents individuals who were benefited by these banks set up under the 20-Point Programme to uplift the lot of the poor.
